In Ramadan sayyidi wa sanadi Mufti Mohammad Taqi Usmani (Allah preserve & protect him) follows the Sunna of giving financial gifts to the deserving individuals. It is like a blowing breeze. Masha-Allah. Computerized lists of recipients are made. There are separate categories for the zakat, sadaqat and hadiya. Many individuals visit or send letters requesting aid. Inqueries are made actively to acertain zakat recipients.
This Ramadan a letter from a student was presented. He requested for a laptop. However, he made it clear that he could not be a recipient of Zakat.
Sayyidi wa sanadi replied,
‘Please, let me know if it is permissible for you to make such a request.’
